No. You don't pay all the bills....

My neighbor was complaining about having to pay all the bills in their home.  She is a SAHM.  She doesn't have income.  She may take care of the bills and ensure they are paid...but the way I see it...the money is family money.  Earned by her husband while she stays home with the baby and toddler.

Yeah, it's definitely family money. She certainly doesn't pay all the bills but that seems like an odd thing for a SAHM to complain about.

Yeah I wouldn't be complaining if my only bill responsibility is sending the check every month. I actually pay all the bills every month. I bring home all the income and send out the payments in time. She should be grateful that her DH makes enough to support her staying home with her children.

 I was a bit confused.

Maybe she's annoyed by the process of bill paying? She doesn't like dealing with finances?

If she was saying she hates the act of actually sitting down to send out payment for all the bills, I could understand.

I assume she's referring to the process itself. Yes my husband makes our money but I'm the one who makes sure all the bills get paid and I don't enjoy "paying the bills" either.

I hate doing the budget and the bills. I do it, but it annoys the hell out of me.
